• In Between

    Hey, pretty girl!

    This one is going to be a quick post! Wanted to share a causal but feminine look for Valentine’s Day & a song I’m lovin’ right now that was the inspiration for my IG post today!

    Sweater : This sweater is from my favorite store, Red Dress Boutique. This sweater is casual but has a feminine feel to it w/the see through holes and frill! Unfortunately, it is sold out right now. However, if you add your email to the list you will be notified when it restocks!

    Jeans : These are the BEST jeans y’all. Especially for my fellow not thick, thick girls. It hugs your curves in all the right places and fits like a glove! I got a size 26 for reference.

    Purse : This purse adds a pop of pink for a cute & simple Valentine’s Day look. This would look adorable for a night out with your girls or a date with your man!

    Boots : Sorels are my go-to when it comes to boots! Not only do they incorporate heels into a boot design, but they are SO comfy. They are on the spendy side but totally worth the price.

    Hairband : This hairband takes me back to when I was a little girl. Sometimes it’s fun just to throw a lil innocence into your adult look!

    When wearing this hairband I immediately thought of a Kelsea Ballerini song and knew I needed to use it as my caption: In Between.

    The lyrics of this song are so relatable for us first year college students! We are in this in between phase that can be so complicated to navigate it at times. Give the song a listen to for me!

  • Local Boutique-ing

    Hey, pretty girl!

    Recently I’ve been on a boutique binge – mostly because I hate having the exact same clothes as a million other girls. Plus, shopping at local boutiques is not only fun, but you’re supporting a local business.


    • A Bushel and a Peck
      • About
        • This store is a hidden gem! Along the downtown Rosemount strip, you can easily mistake this boutique for a classic home. The set-up of the store is open, light and features two levels. The upper level is clothing, accessorizes, bathroom scented items and shoes. The lower level consists of home decor.

          • Cheetah Print
          • Red/White
        • Jeans
          • Flare
          • White


    • The Stash
      • About
        • This store is more of the classic boutique – a little on the smaller side but full of amazing finds. My favorite sections of their store was their wooden signs with sayings and necklaces. A lot of them contained empowering or funny sayings that would be perfect for any style.
      • Finds
        • Necklace
    • Shop Chicks
      • About
        • Shop Chicks is a spin-off of “A Bushel and a Peck.” This store had a very similar feel, but was a tad smaller. I found it much easier to find casual wear and home decor that appealed to a college level girl as opposed to their sister-store.
